Subject: [NOVICE] Starting ProgreSQL server
I've followed the installation instructions for 7.4.3 on Fedora Core 1
Linux on a Pentium II 233 system, and it's installed fine. I've
instructed the configure tool to use TCP port 5321 during the
I tried to create a test database with createdb, and this is the message
I get:
createdb: could not connect to database template1: could not connect to
server: Connection refused
        Is the server running on host <IP address> and accepting 
        TCP/IP connections on port 5321?
I've got PGHOSTADDR set to <IP address>, which is the correct address
for my Linux machine, and PGPORT set to 5321, and the PostgreSQL server
is set to start with the -i switch.
I can't think of anything else that it could be - I had it working
before without specifying a port during the configuration phase, but I
need the database running to test a customer's application, which is
expecting the server to be listening to a specific port.
I haven't found anything else useful in the documentation other than
setting PGHOSTADDR and PGPORT in the environment, but can anyone else
come up with something I can check?
Thanks in advance,
Richard Watt
